Pours gold with a white head. Smells of sweet malt with some peppery hints. Tastes sweet with a touch of hoppy bitterness to balance it out with a crisp finish. Enjoyable. DocLock (10731) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2009
Bottle from WAW and Beer Cellar. Hazy gold pour with off-white head. Nose is hopcitrus, apricotty fruit. Medium palate, not terribly complex, with flavors of creamy apricotty sweet honey malt followed up by mild hops and citric notes. Mild peppery spice late, but not much going on here in flavor or palate. Still, not offensive at all, just not something that will likely wow you. nimbleprop (8476) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 17, 2009
22oz bomber from the Cheese Shop in Williamsburg. Picked this up because I was drinking with a buddy who’s not into extreme beers. This was just what was needed. Pours a slightly hazy, straw yellow with a soft, creamy white head. Nose is slightly spicy with some light citrus. Flavor is nice, a little bready, some coriander, slight orange and lemons. Soft and fizzy in the mouth. Very drinkable, session beer, a good beer for the average beer drinker. tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Bottle at Xmas Eve Eve Eve. Pours hazy yellow with lots of bubbles and white head. The aroma is orangey with some spicy notes. The flavor is doughy and bitter with a medicinal quality. Drinkable, but not great. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2008
tronraner’s Xmas Eve Eve Eve Tasting. Sample from a bottle thanks to Butters. Hazy light yellow with little spots of unfilitered floaties. Thin whtie head, light citrusy aroma. Taste is tart possibly infected? I was enjoying it, but not as a cream ale.

650 ml shared by Butters at the Christmas gathering. Pale yellow with a large head. Smells plasticy, with a base of honey. Taste is an off-kilter match of bitter citrus rind and honey. Light bodied and dry. Suttree (6418) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 23, 2008
Yellow, bubbly, with a decent white head. Bready and jammy aroma, with a touch of citrus. Crisp palate, with some fruity sweetness. Some herbal notes in there, as well. Thanks to Butters at the Maryville tasting. mwelsh13 (499) - Maryland, USA - NOV 27, 2008
22 oz bottle pours deep yellow, almost golden, with a bit of orange. Very clear and great carbonation. Corn, cream of wheat and bready aroma. Dry taste with a very light body. A bit of grassy hop bitterness. Wheat flavors with some yeast. Goes down easy. Would be a great lawnmower beer. edmedina (21) - Chesterfield, Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2008
The All American Cream starts out with a lot carbonation. The head on this is about 2 to 3 fingers worth. The aroma is a nice bitter and hoppy smell. The color is a clear reddish gold. As it sits here in my Sam Adams Glass you absolutely see the bubbles moving around in there and not just in the center but all over the place. The taste is bitter almost pilsner like. It has a citrus after taste that isn’t all that bad. Now I do get some yeasty taste as well. Also what tastes like sweet corn. However, it is pretty subtle.
I think what we have actually a decent beer for those folks who love the macro stuf and are interested to move to craft beer.

Bottle. Clear golden pour. Tall fluffy white head. Aroma is grains, toasty malts, some creamed corn, grassy hops and soft lemon. Taste has more grains, malt, soft grass, lemon, yeast notes, light hops and light creamed corn. Body is light and bubbly. Tingly carbonation at times but refreshing all the while. Finishes with more creamed corn, toasted malt, light lemon, yeast and grassy notes. Not bad! Had this on draft at the Williamsburg Tasting at Green Leafe but did not take notes then. I think it was a touch better on draft.
